Portuguese at 马会论坛’s

Portuguese is a world language that enhances the academic and professional profile of any student planning a career with an international component. Speaking Portuguese increases your marketability, as more businesses, government agencies and nongovernmental organizations seek tri-lingual (English-Spanish-Portuguese) speakers to cover Latin America.

Portuguese is the most widely spoken language in South America, with over 180 million speakers in Brazil alone. In Africa, two Portuguese-speaking nations, Mozambique and Angola, are experiencing rapid economic growth after the end of civil conflicts as production of their oil and minerals increases.
